The Teamsters and Amazon: Why we care

The Teamsters are coming for Amazon.  The union has said in an official resolution, obtained by vice, that unionizing and building worker power at Amazon is a top priority.     Quoting Vice:

The resolution states the Teamsters plan to create a special Amazon Division, specifically to aid Amazon workers in unionizing and defending standards in the logistics industry—and will fully fund the project. 

Why do we care?

The Teamsters are coming for Amazon?    I would hope that’s pretty obvious why we care…. Link that to the previous story too, showing the changing power of workers.     The Teamsters see an opportunity…. And you should see the implications.
